Gellért Hill

The story goes that Bishop Gellert died a martyr in the 11th century. Legend has it that he was pushed by pagans from this very spot. They sealed him in a barrel and tossed him down into the Danube. The statue is located just above the Elizabeth Bridge on Gellert Hill. The views over the river and city are spectacular, and you can even get a glimpse of the parliament. The hike up is not too strenuous and it's worthwhile, especially to escape the less adventurous crowds. The Citadel complex is a relic from the Habsburg past and was heavily damaged by the Hungarians in 1900. Today it houses a military museum. The main points of interest on the plateau and nearby are Liberty Statue, Hotel Gellért, the Gellért Baths and the Gellért Hill Cave.
